According to a recent report from MemeBurn, many start-up online businesses neglect to carefully manage their virtual server hosting plans and eventually experience performance issues because their plan does not match their website's needs.
The report explained start-up sites on a small hosting plan can easily experience major spikes in visitors. This can cause them to overwhelm their shared server plan, creating problems with site performance.
Such issues as slow page crashes, loading errors and downtime can result from overloading the hosted server. If a website is frequently experiencing problems of this nature, it may be time to move to a dedicated or VPS server, the report explained, as both forms of hosting provide more physical space.
Scaling hardware will not solve all website problems because outdated code, inadequate development architecture and poor database optimization can also affect performance. In these instances, the administrator must learn to manage the company's server or pay the hosting company to do so, the report said.
According to a recent report from the Web Hosting Geeks, cloud-based VPS servers can be challenging for novice developers to work with because they require management from the site's administrator. However, many web hosting providers will offer management services as a part of the service level agreement.
